    The exact same set up interior-wise of the '19 RDX A-Spect. My wife has the '19 RDX A-Spect, I have the '19 TLX A-Spect. One thing I don't like about the '21 TLX A-Spect, is I dislike that big ass dynamic mode knob. Unlike the '19 TLX A-Spect, they should have kept the button, next to gear shift.

      Not at that price new, same price as base engine three series which is actually a little less powerful than the tlx, the base level luxury cars are only worthwhile in the sports lines, whether it’s an m440i or an s4, but the type s will match those in performance as well.

      @Raschaud Farmer whether it is mainstream or not. For what I wanted the TLX didn’t offer that. The TLX is extremely small in the rear and trunk. I’m not a brand snob and I’m not going to spend 50k for a car that only checks half of the boxes for me. Acura is a bargain luxury brand if we want to get specific. Audi, BMW, and Mercedes are top of the line. Acura is tiptoeing in that mainstream market to me. Everyone has their own opinion on these cars. Does not make me right or you wrong at the end of the day. I just commented and said what I decided to go with.

    I was planning to get the Acura TLX until I saw that god-awful trackpad system for the infotainment. It is a nightmare to use with Apple Carplay and Android Auto. Every car should have a touchscreen in 2021. Even the Stinger that costs $10,000 less has a touchscreen.

      Touchscreens are terrible and take away your focus which is the most important part when driving. It blows my mind people want to reach and touch a screen. They also are fingerprint magnets. Maybe take the time to learn the system.

      Completely two different target markets for the Accord and the TLX. The Accord is a mainstream car, the TLX is a luxury sedan that competes with bmw, Mercedes Audi, Lexus etc. The accord competes with the Camry, Mazda 6 etc. Two different buyers.

    Glad to see amber LEDs on the taillights and that they added a separate strip in the front so it doesn't share the LED strip with the DRLs. Also props to you for adding brake light and reverse lights to the video. It might be better if you were standing at a distance from the back (to see both taillights and cycle through stepping on the brakes a few times.) Keep up the great work and appreciate the night reviews and beam pattern videos. It really satisfies us lighting geeks!

      It's turbocharged. Makes just as much power and better mpg.

    I would have liked if the turn signals were dynamic like the Audis!

    Literally my TLX lol. I stay getting compliments and stares from people! But, So far.. So good! The type S is the more performance version. This is a mixture of sport/luxury (Balanced) and can’t go wrong with reliability/ re-sale value for a long term car. Sure stinger/genesis has all the gimmick tech stuff, But this handles like a beast 💯

      @chigasaki06 nah. Test drove it and I didn’t like it. I test drove the lexus and it was 50/50. Genesis/kia they push all of this technology on the interior and I’m not a fan.. just my opinion

      What gimmick tech stuff does the Genesis/Stinger have? Better handling than the TLX though.

    Acura/Honda always have the best looking and brightest headlights in my opinion

      That’s why I always know if it’s a Honda or Acura or even the older generations on the road from a far

    I really appreciate your night time reviews! The majority of well know journalists are lacking on this front.

    Thank you so much for the in-depth headlight look. Especially against a wall to show the beam pattern. Honestly I look for that in every review but never find it. Subscribed!
